|Here are some details about my project:|
What was your source for this sewing project?
Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo Vogue 2939
What materials did you use? Vogue 2939 skirt pattern, fabric, invisible zip, lining, button, thread metrosene.
What are you most proud of? The pleats. The zip was on the side, I find this makes the side seam a funny shape, so placed it at centre back, and decided to line the skirt which is so easy. I also added a tab and a button at the top of the zip as it makes closure easier. I didn't put the facings on as I don't have a waist really, I just turn over the top 5/8 and stitched it. I added 2.5 inches to the length, and found it a little short, so added a false hem - just stitch fabric or tape about 1.5" wide to lower hem, then turn and either hem or stitch, this has added a little body to the pleats. To make pleats sharp use your clapper.
